Tumult Hype 3.6.8 Update Now Available (and Monotype Font discontinuation)

We just released Tumult Hype version 3.6.8! This update fixes several bugs and it is recommended that everyone update immediately.

Read the full release notes here.

Important Note: This update removes the Monotype Fonts library from Tumult Hype. Unfortunately, Monotype has decided to discontinue the Monotype Web Platform, which the Hype application relied on to add and export utilized fonts. Existing exports will not be effected, but new exports must transition to using different fonts or replacing them with Custom CSS provided by Monotype. There are instructions and more information in the Monotype Transition Guide. We don’t like removing features and are sorry if this causes an interruption in your work.

Tumult Hype v3.6.8 is a free update to v2 and v3 users and requires macOS 10.8 or later. It is planned to be the last v3 update as v4 will be out shortly. Any purchases of v3.6.8 made now will get a free upgrade to v4.
